Safeguarding is about protecting children and young people from abuse or neglect by the actions or inaction of another person. In order to safeguard and protect children we need to learn how to identify children at risk and then take the necessary protective steps.

Every child has the right to be safe and this safeguarding course aims to teach attenders how to recognise the signs of abuse and neglect and what actions to take to stop this from happening and from recurring. Abuse, neglect and exploitation can be perpetrated anywhere and by anyone, quite often being a person in a position of trust.

This course is designed for all persons who work with children to give them the tools and knowledge to make a difference to a child’s life. It will also let the practitioner know the correct actions to take when dealing with a child safeguarding issue. It is supported with a real life case study which underpins the learning in each section.
